Seeds That Meet Project Goals
Holland Wildflower Farm wildflower seed mixes and native grass mixes were designed with your project and its goals in mind. Landscapes that are environmentally in sync with the local native flora and fauna are revitalizing landscapes, making the local environment better for us humans and the wildlife community too. Native seeds work for all kinds of organizational goals, including new developments in our communities. Is your school planning an outdoor classroom? Is your church or business looking for solutions other than more mowing? Ideal for school campuses, church grounds, community centers, and other landscape niches, our mixes address many common goals. First and foremost, we encourage you to choose native seed and seed mixes when you can. If a region of North America is indicated in the seed mix name, you can be assured that the seed is native in your biogeographic region. If you have very specific requirements, we can make a custom mix (10 lb minimum).
Our regional native seed mixes are a great place to start bringing unique and beneficial flower and grass species that will establish and flourish much longer than any non-native species will. Our experts and seed resources provide help and feedback to landscape architects planning gardens for urban sites, or vacation homes. On every scale, a careful consideration of how to enrich the natural environment, reduce water use, and still be beautiful will naturally lead planners to wildflowers.
Do you have a deer problem? Are you planting a cut flower garden? Getting started in beekeeping? Looking for solutions for a shady edge in your landscape? We have seed mix solutions for all of these and other special uses.
Using wildflowers to buffer landscape areas or roadsides adds a layer of color but so much more to the health of the landscape. Reduced mowing and maintenance, flowers for birds, insects and animals — these factors are good for the environment and can be cost-cutters. Urban dwellers get a connection with the environment that often only the insight of eco-conscious landscape architects and designers can provide in an urban setting. Butterflies like the city as long as there are accommodations like nectar plants and cover plants for sunning or when it’s stormy.
The designers of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art used native trees, shrubs and plants that were already being beautifully showcased at the Neil Compton Gardens in downtown Bentonville to attach this natural area-turned-museum to the community.
The approach to Crystal Bridges Museum original landscape plan included a hundred pounds of one of our most popular special use mixes Little Bit Shady seed mix.
Outdoor classrooms are more and more popular to teach students and young children science by experience. What better way to engage the natural environment than by using soil and water conservation measures with native plants to create regionally unique flora for the bees, butterflies and birds, not to mention frogs, lizards, and snakes. At the farm we have a snake that suns herself every day on the walking path. We keep telling her she’s going to scare someone or get stepped on, but she still comes out. She lives under a rock beside the wildflower meadow. She is a speckled king snake, a good snake that will eat bad ones. Mother Nature is all around us if we will only accommodate her with habitat enhancements. Grow wildflowers and as many native flowers, grasses and shrubs to create a community that is fauna friendly because you have provided a home in your backyard or around your building or parking lot.
